I met him before the first Maroon 5 album came out. Dobkin wanted the video to be about the band's connection with their audience and wanted elements of real people and Los Angeles , Levine's hometown. When Levine heard the idea, he loved it.
But we locked in on this idea and thought it would be great. And then it was like, holy shit, how do we pull this off? At the beginning, Dobkin thought that no one should know about the crash and filming. After some rethinking, however, he decided that at least one person should know about it.
So they informed only the grooms and decided to keep the secret from the brides. The grooms were not, however, told the name of the band; they were only told that they are very popular and had won several Grammy Awards. The next step was deciding how, at the beginning of each performance, the band would hide. Dobkin designed and had built a drop-down tent, where a button was pressed, causing the curtains drop to the floor. After that, Dobkin visited many wedding planners in Los Angeles and visited a number of the locations where weddings would be happening, in order to decide which location at the site would be the best for setting up the tent.
The music video was filmed in Los Angeles, California. One of the ballrooms was at the Park Plaza Hotel, a very popular location for celebrations and parties. What happens if we ruin the bride's moment? The dance floor would be cleared of everyone except for the newlyweds and the song would be another traditional "First Dance" for the newlyweds. According to Dobkin, that was a very good idea. It's just sick romantic. A few days before shooting began, most of the grooms started getting nervous and wanted to cancel the wedding crash.
Dobkin met with each of them and talked them out of canceling. At one point, he told them that the mysterious band is in fact Maroon 5. Eventually, it turned out that most of them were fans of Maroon 5 and "Adam from The Voice " and had positive responses for performing "She Will Be Loved" after shooting "Sugar". Eventually, they got out of the elevator and had to run nine floors in order to get to the ballroom in time for filming. Dobkin recalled that when the performance of "Sugar" finished, the members of the band looked at him like they wanted to say, "Oh my God.
That was awesome! Where's the next one? In a press release for the video, Levine stated, "It was an out of body experience. I had no idea I would be affected by the overwhelming reactions we received from the couples and guests.
Being able to create an unforgettable experience for several people was the highlight of it all. However, the brides and grooms were shocked that the band crashed their wedding. He added, "It was a lot of fun. It felt good to kind of surprise these people and make them happy. Happy that they liked our band too. It would have been a total disaster [if not]. The video starts with the members of the band are leaving the Carondelet House, with Levine saying, "It's December 6, We're going to drive across L.
Subsequently, a van parks near the Park Plaza Hotel where a wedding is happening in its ballroom. One guest stands up and starts arguing with the builders, while scenes are intercut with Maroon 5 driving around the city and Levine singing the lyrics of the song.
The band gets in front of the hotel and sneaks into the building while the whole situation is happening; they are getting into the white sheets where the instruments are set in. As they are set they call the bride and the groom to stand in front of them and get the curtains down; when they see them the bride starts to scream happily, while the guests seem confused.
After that, they start smiling and all the guests get up and start dancing to the song. Scenes are intercut with the band driving again, getting to another wedding and are sneaking inside the building where it's happening. Similar situation happens there when they show to the guests which are both surprised and happy. While driving around Los Angeles, some girls recognize the band and take picture with Valentine.
During the last part of the video, the band crashes in five more weddings, leaving the people surprised. The video concludes with the guests of the weddings giving applause to the band, while Maroon 5's members cheer with the newlyweds. At the very ending of the visual, Levine says to the guests, "Thank you guys, this was the coolest thing we did ever, ever, ever, ever According to Ryan Reed of Rolling Stone , in the video the band channels the roles of actors Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn in Wedding Crashers while surprising the audience with their performance of "Sugar".
He also noted that the women were quicker to recognize Levine than the men. Steven Gottlieb of Video Static called the video "fun" and a "gambit" with a goal just to surprise the wedding and not to pick up drunk bridesmaids, a reference to Wedding Crashers.
Music 's Chart Watch labeled the video as a little bit "corny"; however, according to him it's also "cute" and "fun". As of May , the video is YouTube's 11th most viewed video  with over 3.

We played the parents of the Asian bride and yes, everything was staged. Carly Mallenbaum of USA Today also analyzed the situation and wrote that although it is possible that some of the weddings were staged, at least two of them were real.
She spoke to wedding photographer Eric Parsons, who told her that he was shooting one of the weddings when Maroon 5 made the surprise appearance: "Sharon [the bride] knew nothing about it. She's the one who mouths ' what the fuck ' in the video. Everyone went berserk. The room was electric.
